It's Wednesday and do I have anything to say.....

Probably not but has that ever stopped me in the past????? Nope!!!!

When I got home I ran around with the hounds getting them their out doors time - and dinner and then fixed up some supper for the two of us - and them jumped in the shower so that I could be ready for the 5 pm start time of GWTW. I even got started on another flick - "The Name of the Rose" - 1986 starring Sean Connery and Christian Slater - such a great film set in the 14th century at an isolated monastery where murder is a foot. Then watched "GWTW" and then "Singing in the Rain" - finishing up the evening with the end of "Rose." A great movie evening!!!!!

Stitching away on an exchange.....

So lets answer some comments - shall we..... I always enjoy them and do thank you - but I don't think you can hear me when I am talking to the computer while I read so I better just write some stuff here -

Deb - I love "All About Eve" probably one of the best movies ever!! Such a great "return" for Miss Davis - and weren't we the lucky ones to have her play Margo - as she wasn't originally cast for the roll - Do you remember who was??????

Alf in Stitches - I never thought about how I stitched and have probably been doing it all wrong for years - but I think I do the "poke and pull" method. I think I stitch so slowly as some of the people out there seem to finish up a ton of stuff so quickly.

Doris - I know - it was seeming like spring had sprung here but over the past few days we have been having really windy weather - they have even closed off one of the bridges over the Bay...and a big 18 wheeler flipped on a bridge last night due to heavy winds. I think this weekend it is supposed to be warmer but I will believe that when I see it!!

Diana - I also love the carol and it is one of my favorites - that is the main reason that when I saw Vonna stitching it up I just knew I had to do it also.

I think that's about all - tonight TCM is showing "Double Indemnity" - 1944 - starring Babara Stanwyck and Fred McMurray. A really superior film and if you haven't seen it you should make the effort - both stars are in top form - nominated for 7 Oscars - it is worth seeing!!! Starts at 5 PST and 8 EST.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Take care,
edgar

I enjoyed the Name of the Rose movie also, but the book was sooo much better.

You would have to ask me who was suppose to play Margo Channing wouldn't you? I used to really be big on movies when I was younger - before the kids and "Disney" entered my world. If memory serves itself here - and I lose bits of it daily - it was Claudette Colbert and I think that Susan Hayward was originally thought of to play Eve. But I could be wrong on that one. Anyway, it is one of the greatest movies of all time. I could watch it over and over. I liked George Sanders in it too - had some great lines. Think I need to take a stitch day and watch this again.

That's what I'm typing for the 'word verification'! LOL)
